Courage and Love

I've always loved this poem.
Just thought I'd share today.

The Courage That My Mother Had - 

Poem by Edna St. Vincent Millay

The courage that my mother had 
Went with her, and is with her still: 
Rock from New England quarried;
Now granite in a granite hill. 

The golden brooch my mother wore 
She left behind for me to wear; 
I have no thing I treasure more: 
Yet, it is something I could spare. 

Oh, if instead she'd left to me 

The thing she took into the grave!— 
That courage like a rock, which she 
Has no more need of, and I have. 

A beautiful, haunting song written by
Leonard Cohen,
and sung by 
The Civil Wars.

I wish you all the joy that you can have,
my little sweet-peas!
have a wonderful week!
